This election's real 'queenmaker':

Back in July, the speech that Metiria Turei gave to the Greens AGM on her experiences as a beneficiary in the 1990s (including an admission she broke the law) was the pebble that started yesterday’s avalanche.

It led to a not insignificant number of Labour voters switching support to the Greens. Which then drove Labour’s poll ratings down to the low-mid 20s. Which caused Andrew Little to resign as leader. Which put Jacinda Ardern in charge of Labour. After which, the rest is history. - (TheSpinoff.co.nz)

:-O Story of the year! But do you reckon it's got a chance of passing?

Can her first act of office be transferring the US embassy to a dirt road outside of Invercargill?

Mads Chapman on-point as usual:

Meanwhile, Bill English has resigned, and no clue how serious people are contending for the leadership or if it's seen as a poisoned chalice / one for a caretaker figure.
